Cuatrecasas reached a total consolidated revenue volume of 350 million euros in 2021, “a record figure that represents 11% more than in 2020”, indicates the firm in a statement. “In Spain, the figure rose to 286 million euros. The results of 2021 confirm the growth trend that the firm has been observing in the last five years. Between 2017 and 2021, Cuatrecasas has experienced an accumulated increase in revenue of 102.3 million euros (+41.3%)”, adds the office.
